Hi everyone:

I have an odd error that popped up this morning. About 8 nodes suddenly
came up with "torque spool filesystem full" even though the spool
filesystem (4 GiB) was completely empty, and there had not been any jobs at
all for > 12 hours prior to the error appearing.

We have $logevent set to 511, and there is the every-5-minute timestamp in
the log with the torque version number, but nothing else for the >12 hours
preceding the appearance of the error.

Restarting pbs_mom clears the problem.

We are running Torque 2.5.12 on RHEL6.

Any hints as to where to look next?

Thanks in advance,

David Chin, Ph.D.
